Transilvanian Garlic-Usturoi: A Movie About Friendship and No Prejudicies

The premiere of the long-awaited debut movie Garlic-Usturoi took place last night at Casa Tiff in Cluj-Napoca ,the home of the thirteenth TIFF(Transilvania International Film Festival).The theater was packed with people ready to watch a good story filmed in Transylvania on a low-budget. The producer and screen writer ,Radu Bazavan,known also in the local blogo-sphere as www.groparu.ro,summarized the plot as a "honest ,simple story that is made for entertainment and does not ask any postmodern complicated questions"The director of the movie ,Lucian Alexandrescu is a Romanian-American citizen who lives in Florida,USA and appeared briefly on FACE Time in front of the spectators . The movie was filmed two years ago but it was edited in stages because of the almost non existent budget that followed the filming sessions in the County of Salaj ,Romania.Beside the two female characters(mother and witch) that were professional actors all other crew ,including the kids were local people and other bloggers from Cluj. The movie projection was a success and the crowd stayed on for a session of QA.https://www.reelhouse.org/lucianoalexander/usturoi/usturoiroadtrip
